What is Evolution?

“We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
That’s how a young person turns toward a teacher.
That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively.
Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”
— The Story of Evolution

Changes

Everything is changing, rearranging. Life as I know it now will never be the same. They say the same man never steps into the same river twice and I am not the same person I was 4 years ago. Hell I am not the same person I was 4 weeks ago!

 So many things have changed. My career path, my dreams, my hopes, my desires are all evolving in accordance with the manifestation of my true purpose. 

Not everyone will get the opportunity to realize their true potential in this current incarnation. Not everyone will ascend. Some will have to stay and relive their lives. Another chance to get it all right. 

As I embrace the many changes taking place within and around me I can only hope that I will remain resilient enough to stay true to my higher self. I will never forget the person I was but I can never be her again. I can never be five years old again. No matter how great life was back then I can never go back. 

The present is all there is, the NOW. The past a mere memory, the future but a dream. Regression and stagnancy are enemies of change. And change is where we are, change is what we are. 

Everything is changing... right now. I can feel it. As the Earth rotates around the Sun, as the Moon makes her rotation around the Earth, as the cosmos come into alignment, I can feel the changes in my soul, tugging at my very being, propelling me into uncertainty.

Change is imminent and continuous. Resistance is futile. 

As butterflies emerge from cocoons, my new life incubates within me, awaiting awakening. 

I can change, I will change...

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
